CPD Workshop Schedule
Workshops will provide a great opportunity for visitors and conference delegates to have a hands-on look at equipment, ask questions, and learn about the industry services in an interactive environment.
For Installers, GSES will be leading free CPD workshops over two days of the exhibition. Hosted on the exhibition floor, workshops will cover various topics related to on-grid energy storage. Get awarded 15 CPD points for each course and full program is here.
All workshops do not need to be registered for separately and come as part of your free exhibition registration. You can register for the free exhibition here.
Full workshop program below.

• Safety Barricades
12.00pm – 1.30pm
BATTERY MARKET UPDATE AND BATTERY CONTROL SYSTEM SNAPSHOT ,15 CPD POINTS
Workshop Presenter – Arpit Gandhi
This course will provide an overview of the battery market as it currently stands including technology updates, price reductions and industry consolidation or expansion. The course will also look at battery control systems which so far has been the biggest gap in the battery storage market.
2.30pm – 4.00pm
THE BATTERY UNIVERSE (AS IT CURRENTLY EXISTS) – FLOW BATTERIES, SODIUM SULFUR, HYBRID ION, PB-ACID ETC. 15 CPD POINTS
Workshop Presenter – Geoff Stapleton
This course will deal into the construction, applications, safe disposal, charging regimes for different battery technologies available in the marketplace. The battery technologies
to be discussed are:
• Flow batteries
• Sodium Sulfur batteries
• Supercapacitor based Lead batteries
• Hybrid Ion batteries
Thursday 15th June 2017
9.30am – 11.30am
BATTERY SYSTEM SIZING,15 CPD POINTS
Workshop Presenter – Geoff Stapleton
This course will look at storage at the commercial and residential level, and the ways it canreduce costs for those customers. There will be an emphasis on designing systems that reduce the cost of electricity to system owners, however scenarios will be presented that consider what is required for customers to completely leave the grid.
12.00pm – 1.00pm
BATTERY WARRANTIES, INSURANCES AND OTHER RISKS ,15 CPD POINTS
Workshop Presenter – Richard Collins
This course will provide the necessary information to consider while designing and installing Grid Connected Energy Systems with Battery Storage (GCBS).
2.00pm – 3.30 pm
ANATOMY OF A LITHIUM ION BATTERY, 15 CPD POINTS
Workshop Presenter – Winnie Fu
This course will delve into the structures, chemistries and mechanisms at play within a Lithium Ion Battery.
The course will explore the following:
• The electrode structure of the lithium ion battery
• The factors at play during ion intercalation
• What mechanisms play a role in degradation
• What has actually happened when a lithium ion battery has degraded
• How do different chemistries influence the performance of the lithium ion battery
